    Yep, like the £350/week extra pledged to be spent on the NHS. Theresa Thatcher, oops, I think I mean Margaret May (or is it May Thatcher?), has no intention of honouring that promise.

    Except when that 'promise' was made by others she was on the opposite side of the argument which was telling us that we absolutely must stay in the EU or else the World would explode.

    The problem with energy prices is not the wholesale costs, it isn't the 'greedy' corps, it is the government adding ever more onto the bills to pay for their wacky schemes. Kill off the smart meter programme tomorrow and the best part of £10Bn can be taken off consumers energy bills.

    People misunderstanding energy bills and 'sticking' on standard tariffs for fear of messing up will only rise since May is constantly ripping funds out of the education system. Who needs education anyway? It's not like it's the cornerstone of a healthy economy or anything!
